Le Zénith, Toulouse, 6/12/12

Just a few words about Deep Purple’s Toulouse show last Thursday.

Having been to Nantes in November, I must say this was perhaps a bit weary overall, although quite nice — well, maybe it was the sunday schedule, and a lame audience — I don’t know, but some of the band members (NOT Ian Gillan) seemed a bit uninspired, although the show was professional and enjoyable as always.

Very good gig

Deep Purple, Nantes, Pruillé (France, 11th November 2012).
Even sometimes are screaming was dropped as highway star it was a very good gig.
The show was energetic and fresh.I totally agree with the post from Grenoble,for Ian Paice and Ian Gillan.The drums solo was amazing and Ian Gillan was also in a fine form as Roger,Steve and Don who has played”Dans les prisons de Nantes”.
